Before you hurry off to Banff on a whim, take some time to learn a little about it.
Banff is 65 miles (105 kilometers) to the west of Calgary, a well-known city.
Forget about the star attractions — it's the locals that make a place tick. In this part of Alberta, you'll find 8,000 of them.
The Banff Gondola and Upper Hot Springs should be included on the bucket lists of all Banff adventurers. Clear up your sightseeing program and spend a couple of days visiting these truly unforgettable attractions!
Need some sightseeing hints? Don't leave this happening city until you've enjoyed attractions like Cave and Basin National Historic Site and Mount Norquay Ski Resort.
Quite often the most revolutionary discoveries are observed in nature. At Banff Park Museum you can learn more about our incredible planet. Want some more ideas? Stop and admire the exhibits at Walter Phillips Gallery. If something really intrigues you, chat to the attendant and find out about the person who dreamed it up. But there's more. Admire the displays at Canada House Gallery. If something catches your eye, talk to the attendant and find out about the talented artist behind it.
The buzz and excitement of roaming a brand new destination will never get old. Once you've arrived at Calgary International Airport (YYC), the main hubs of Banff will be just 70 miles (113 kilometers) to the west away.
